Kano government upholds moral standards, rejects LGBT rights

  • This move is seen as a strong stance against the promotion of LGBT rights in Kano State.
  • The state government’s position on this issue is clear, and it will not tolerate any activities that go against its moral standards.

The Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, has made a statement regarding the promotion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights in the state.

He declared that his administration will not tolerate any group suspected of promoting and advocating for LGBT rights.

This directive comes amid rising tensions over the activities of groups allegedly promoting same-sex marriage in Kano State.

The state commissioner for Information, Baba Dantiye, disclosed the governor’s stance to newsmen on Sunday in Kano.

Dantiye addressed concerns about an alleged agreement by the Federal Government related to LGBT rights.

The commissioner emphasized that the state government will not accept any agreement that promotes the activities of gays and lesbians.

Such activities, he said, contravene the norms and values of the people of Kano and breach the state’s moral standards.

Dantiye said the governor has mandated the Hisbah Board to crack down on groups promoting LGBT rights in the state.

He said, “I spoke with the governor, and he expressed his disapproval of the said agreement, even though it has not yet been confirmed. He assured me that there is no room for LGBT activities in Kano.

“As you know, 98% of Kano’s population are Muslims by faith, and our religion is against this immorality, so we can’t accept it.”

On allegations of groups promoting LGBT activities in the state, the commissioner stated that the government has received citizens’ concerns, and the governor has ordered Hisbah to investigate and take action against these groups.

Dantiye also stated that there are ongoing consultations with religious leaders on how to curb such activities in the state.

He added, “We also discussed this with the governor, and he directed Hisbah to investigate and crack down on them. We will take legal action as appropriate.”
